paw Team Spotlight
Megan Matthyssen
DVM, Texas A&M University Medical Director

Dr. Matthyssen attended Texas A&M University where she received both her BS and DVM degrees with honors. Following graduation, she completed an internship at the veterinary medical teaching hospital at the University of Missouri-Columbia. After practicing for a short time in San Antonio, Dr. Matthyssen purchased her own veterinary clinic in southwest Austin where she practiced equine and small animal medicine. We were very happy when she joined the VCA Tanglewood team in 2013 to focus on canine and feline medicine and her special interests which include ophthalmology, internal medicine and client education. Works keeps her very busy but in her free time she enjoys spending it with her husband and two kids, in addition to her cat, Pastrami, and her dogs, Dodge and Kubo.

Caroll Mays
Hospital Manager
Hello! I am so honored to serve our clients and patients as well as being mentored by Kelli. I've worked in the animal industry for 8 years. My father was in the military and a native of Texas. When I returned home to my family's roots in Texas, I wanted to continue my work with animals to make a positive difference in the veterinary industry.

When I started as a client service representative two years ago, I did not foresee how the experience at VCA Tanglewood animal hospital would impact my life profoundly. We not only have a compassionate, dedicated and talented medical team but we have wonderful clients and patients. I appreciate Kelli so much for being a role model, showing us how people need to be cared for, and maintaining a high level of customer service. I am excited for the future of VCA Tanglewood animal hospital, and will carry on her legacy.
